I have a feeling this is going to be the first post of many - on this topic...
I've known about the field for quite some time - but in the last 4 months I've started to learn a lot more about the finer details - and the potential it offers us in terms of Anti-Aging & Life Extension.
One of the catalysts for me wanting to write about this for you - is the back/disc malfunction I went through about 2.5 years ago (depending on how long you've been here in 'AtlasVille' - you might remember me writing about that excruciating period of life). But there are more ingredients at work here...

The photo above is one I took
- just a few days ago, during an actual Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy procedure. The vial being held by the doctors assistant, held over 1 Billion active mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), drawn just 1 hour prior - from the person they were re-injected into just 30 minutes after the photo was taken.
For now - that is all I can share in terms of the details of this story. Once I can share more, I will be sure to do so - because I believe anyone reading this will benefit from the information.
To be clear - when I speak of "Anti-Aging & Life Extension" - what I'm referring to (for now) is; Enhancing the performance and function of the human body and mind, AS WE AGE - and extending our quality of life - as a result.
Being in my mid-forties now
- I am much more receptive to, and curious about, the potential and possibilities of regenerative stem cell therapy; including cell harvesting "to save for use at a later date" :-)
The more info I gather - the more fascinated I become. Part of this has to do with what I already know about the body & mind - and some of it has to do with my personal desire to "LIVE to the MAX" - for as long as possible...
Although in my early stages of exploring & learning - I thought it would be best to start sharing as I investigate & learn, instead of waiting to share...
I wouldn't call this a rabbit hole
- but rather a larger gateway into a field with many sub-specialties and intriguing applications. A field that is considered to be "young" at this point in time.
For now - I thought this resource would be a helpful piece to supplement what I wrote above - to give you some more insight into what potential exists in Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy for Anti-Aging & Life Extension
Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine
More to come... MUCH more.

Thanks for coming over here today. It means a lot when you stop by to read what I’ve written...
So... 1st things first:
1 - Are You the One For Me?
That is the title of one of the helpful books someone mentioned in my recent and VERY POPULAR blog post
(LOTS of great comments at bottom).
I’m almost done reading this one - and the thing I keep saying to myself is; "This should be required reading for every teenager - male or female...."
Yes - it can help just about any adult who is willing to take the time to read it AND modify behaviors as recommended. But in the hands of teens - it can probably do a LOT of good in many ways - and save many years of heartache & dysfunction
For me - it has re-affirmed lots of what I’ve been feeling, thinking and learning these last 15 years. And it’s fine-tuning my mindset as I move forward in my search for "her" - my ideal mate.
It’s one I wish I had when I was 16 or 17 years old. Each of my kids will be getting a copy VERY soon :-)
I’m reading a few other books as well (I usually read 2-3 at the same time) One of them is 'The 5 Love Languages for Singles'... Just started it last night and already feeling good about it.
I’ll be sharing more insights as "my studies" progress...
2 - Anti-Aging & Natural Skin-Rejuvenation Freebies
These are taking just a little longer than we hoped - BUT, they are going to be worth the wait. You’ll see what I mean once you have these in front of you (we're aiming for ASAP).
These are the 3 Freebies coming your way:
- Skin Quality Assessment and Quick Start Solution PDF
- Interview with a Woman Who Reversed the Visible Age of Her Skin
- Natural Skin Enhancement & Rejuvenation Info-Graphic
Once those are ready - I’ll be sending them right to you... I PROMISE :-)
3 - High-Risk Supplement List (please share today's post, even if only for this item)
Get Your Copy of This FREE List
- and Share With Others Who Need It
The helpful thing about this list, in addition to it being FREE, is that it's maintained in real-time... which means you can't download it, etc... Because it is constantly updated with dangerous dietary supplements that are high-risk, tainted, banned or recalled.
Definitely worth sharing via today's blog post - and BOOKMARKING.
4 - Top Trainer in Lower Westchester NY & Greenwich CT area
If you, or someone you know, lives in Lower Westchester, NY or Greenwich, CT - and wants to hire one the TOP trainers in that area for either one-on-one, or small group training - let us know by getting in touch via our contact page
My brother, Domenick, has 3 spots open in his schedule for new clients or groups. He is good. VERY good.
5 - The Amazing Toning, Shaping, Lifting & Sculpting Device for Women
About 3 years ago I started sketching out a unique idea for a small and simple device that could augment my lower-body toning & sculpting methods for women. (Picture a small device, used in combo with NB/SYMULAST, ULBHTM,... and ULBHT 'To the MAX')
The full story of what happened once I began to share my idea with a few select people will be shared in another post. But for today - I will share this...
What started as drawings in my idea book - is close to being a reality. An actual device you can fit into your purse - that makes all of my lower body programs at least 10 times more effective.
There is still some work to be done - but much progress has been made since the early stages of this concept. One can be in your hands sooner than you might imagine :-)
I’ll share a tiny sneak peek here:
[caption id="attachment_1278" align="alignnone" width="145"] Sneak Preview[/caption]
The smartest personal trainers will have at least one of these in their gear bags.
That’s all I can give you for now - but as the details come together - I promise to share all I can so you can be ready for it.
- Do you already have questions about it?
- Are you slightly excited about it?
- Are you a bit intrigued?
If so, PLEASE post below - I'd love to hear what's on your mind. Even if it has to do with one of the other topics I've written about today.
As always - thanks for reading.

The slogan of this blog, Live to the Max, transcends 'fitness' - it is applied to all aspects of life.
On that note - as promised, here is your follow-up post to my recent and quite popular “3rd, and Final, Wife” blog post I wrote a few weeks ago
Again, I want to thank EVERYONE who commented on that post. I’ve already ordered about 6 of the books recommended by others. And I’m loving them so far...
[caption id="attachment_1262" align="alignnone" width="480"] Some New Books for Relationships and Love[/caption]
The purpose of today’s post is to share some of the books I’ve already read over the last year or two - and hopefully share a few insights & thoughts that might help a few readers today - maybe even help myself as I put things into the written word (a VERY powerful exercise, btw).
[caption id="attachment_1260" align="alignnone" width="500"] Innocent & True Display of Affection[/caption]
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I love to read. Not so much for the sake of reading - but to satisfy my thirst for knowledge & enlightenment - mostly focused on:
- living to my fullest potential (in all areas)
- inspiring others to do the same
- and in the spirit of this blog - Living to the Max.
Today’s focus? Finding/Creating an awesomely healthy love-relationship. So...
I’ve been on a torrid reading spree of relationship-focused books. (some days I read 5 pages - other days it might be 60-70).
One of the authors I highly recommend is Robert Johnson.
Here is a list of his top works compiled at amazon.com
And here is a link featuring some great quotes from him - to give you a taste of his work:
I’ve read the following books by him, so far:
- We; Understanding the Psychology of Romantic Love
- He; Understanding Masculine Psychology
- She; Understanding Feminine Psychology
- Inner Work
I dog-eared them the first time through - but I will read them again, with a highlighter next time - as there are certain sentences and paragraphs that hit home in profound ways and will surely serve as powerful ‘review-reminders’ as time and life progresses.
There are times when I’m reading and I’ll come across an idea or concept that makes me stop and think about how deeply what I just read resonates with me - how much it is a belief, based on my values.
Seeing these things in black and white, from wise teachers who’ve been around much longer than I, is reaffirming - and also a boost that pushes my ‘awareness’ a bit higher.
Writing that just made me realize that as I go through each day - it’s easy to see how most people just “go through the motions” - motions that are fueled by societal norms and habits.
It’s a challenge to ‘step out’ of all that - and requires work & discipline - but it can be done, and it's worth it - many, many times over....
And the more you do, the easier it gets. And with time you’ll notice you tend to connect with others who are working on developing ‘awareness’ in their journey of life.
I don’t want to get too far off base here (maybe another day) - so I’ll close with saying ‘thanks’ again, for reading this today - and let me know your thoughts on Robert Johnson (or any other thoughts you might have). Please post below...

New Pasta Discovery Becomes a New Item In My Fitness Nutrition Arsenal
Today, this is my "#1 fitness food tip"... Next week or next month, it might be something else. BUT, it won't make today's tip any less valuable. It will still be a "keeper" :-)
As I mentioned a few weeks ago - I've had many new discoveries over the last few months while shifting into 'beach fitness/lifestyle' mode - and having my sister & mom in town for extended visits...
My sister, Marisa - is also into the fitness lifestyle... Well, in her own style. Yes, she uses my programs for most of her training sessions - but she also has her own nutrition habits...
And I was fortunate enough to have her introduce me to the idea of trying these "Zero carb, zero calorie noodles..."
I made a VERY SIMPLE stir-fry dish with them - AND I WAS HOOKED.
Fair warning though:
You may LOVE these noodles - or you might despise them.
I promise to shoot a few short videos of me making my quick & easy stir-fry dishes - so you can see exactly how I do it - and how you can too. Stay tuned for those...
But for now - here are two videos I found that are worth watching (until I can record mine) if you want to explore the possibility of adding this neat pasta substitute to your fitness nutrition arsenal:

Here are 2 close-ups of the nutrition label:

As I search the universe for my ideal mate to share the rest of my life with - I find I’m “looking” in different ways than I have in the past...
This is a good thing...
A VERY GOOD thing... And I plan to write more about this, in depth, in the near future...
[caption id="attachment_1233" align="alignnone" width="500"] Who Will "She" Eventually Be?[/caption]
LOTS of revealing info to be shared; such as - some of the recent relationship books I’ve read, thoughts I’ve had - and observations I’ve made...
One of these details ("looking" in different ways) has to do with make-up - or lack of it...
See, I’m realizing how much I LOVE the look of a woman who wears no make-up - or hardly any...
***It’s much deeper than the superficial look though... It SAYS something about how she sees herself - and her confidence in her own natural beauty... She is SECURE.***
Again - there are several layers to this - and I’ll be writing a full blog post about it soon - as I’m feeling slightly prolific again...
That being said - there are times when a woman wants to wear some make-up - i.e., special events, date night, etc... I get it - and I’m all for it every now and again…
BUT - I would say, even if only once in a while - if you place importance on what you put on your body (just like the quality of the foods/nutrients we put in our bodies) - then you’ll appreciate the unique beauty blog Andrea & Jay of R.A.L. have created here
<= Visit their blog AFTER you finish reading the rest of my sweet post here :-)
I’ve made mention of their amazing product line in the past - and I still get lots of positive feedback about it... Not only that - but, my sister and older daughter are hooked on several of R.A.L.’s all natural beauty items (such as Rallye Balm
ok - Before you go visit their fantastic blog and website..
. I’d love to know if you have any great relationship/dating resources that have helped you, or someone you know, at some point in your life.
I have a handful which have already helped me profoundly (I’ll be sharing those in my next post)...
BUT, If you know of a great book, a blog, podcast, etc - please share below because I plan to use some of that feedback in the next big blog post I write for this topic - which is important to me - and most likely a number of other readers here.
AGAIN - I’m scratching the surface in today’s post - and plan to go much deeper in the next one...
So, in the meantime, let’s also have a little fun with this:
If you want to nominate someone for my ideal life-time match - then just post below - even if you’ve never played ‘match-maker’ in the past.
